Champions League 25th Anniversary -

Semi-Final - Liverpool 1-0 Chelsea


The Champions League returns this week and we are celebrating it here at ITV Sport Archive by going through our vault to find some of the best games featuring British clubs since the competition began 25 years ago.

Back in 2005, Liverpool took on Chelsea in the second-leg of their Champions League semi-final. The game was perfectly poised after a tight 0-0 draw in the first-leg. Chelsea went into the match full of confidence after recently securing their first league title in 50 years, but it was Liverpool who had the home advantage. It was another truly unforgettable European night in front of the ITV cameras.
